Do Your Maples Look Gloomy?

Posted on:

If your maples are looking a little less than spectacular, it is likely caused by an insect called Gloomy Scale. Gloomy Scale is an armored “scale insect” that attaches itself to the bark and sucks out nutrients, water, and sugars from the tree. In heavy infestations the tree will suffer from a lack of nutrition. This causes discolored leaves, cracking of the bark, weak and improper growth patterns and branch dieback. In many cases the tree can die if not treated.
